Can I get a car-recharger for a 5GB iPod?

It's mundane, I know. But I need a little advice, and I don't know where else to go to.

My father recently bought a used iPod from a coworker (she was upgrading to the latest model). I'm a complete newbie when it comes to iPods, but...as far as I can tell, it's a 5 Gigabye model, with no "dock" port on it, just the FireWire port. (And the earphone jack, of course.)

Now...is it possible to find an adaptor somewhere so that my Dad can recharge it from a car cigarette lighter? Is there any other hardware we should get for it, first?

Well, thanks for your patience,


Ranchoth

Here's a car charger for your iPod. You can even choose to get it in black or white.

As for other stuff to get, it all depends on your needs. I'd say to check http://www.everythingipod.com/ and http://www.ipodlounge.com/ for ideas.
